Some say it's the busiest month of the year with all the holiday preparation, however I actually really enjoy it. 1) I love wrapping presents, 2) It's fun to bake and 3) There's soo much excitement no matter how old you are! I have given up sitting on Santa's lap however!
As I've gotten older I really appreciate learning what others look forward to in December and their family's holiday traditions. I became more aware of other family's traditions when I went to college, it was intriguing to hear how my friends spent Christmas and the traditional meals and festivities. Now a lot of my coworkers have young kids who are into Santa, so it's fun to hear about all the excitement at their houses and how they get ready for Santa's sleigh to land.
Are they're certain treats you only make around the holidays? At my house my Dad makes homemade chocolates, yummy! Give it a couple weeks and he's chocolate factory will be out in full force (Peanut clusters, Rice krispies treats, and those oriental noodles oh my!). I will admit I eat homemade chocolate and cookies like they're going out of style! BH&G asked their Facebook fans what they look forward to, here's what they had to say:
|Growing up, my family always opened gift Christmas morning. |
Guess we were in the minority.
